It was between 6:30 and 7:00PM getting dark out, I was headed to take my wife out to eat in a town 25 miles away. Leaving my local town population of 5000 with 1 stop light it was rush hour with everyone leaving town. LOL
I was sitting at the stop sign which there aren't many to sit at in the 1st place and was starting to get impatient with all the car traffic in a town that never has any traffic. Since we were in my Challenger, I said the hell with it and launched my Challenger with the GY F1s getting real good traction and we rocked to 60 mph in short order and ducked in and around traffic. Speed limit was 60 then turns to 70.
I set the cruise at 73 and then I see some head lights weaving thru the cars behind me. At this time I'm leading the pack of cars with no one in front of me. At this point only about 10 seconds has passed since I left that stop sign and thought maybe it was another car coming up to race me. I didn't speed up and I set the cruise at 73 mph like I normally do at this point on the road. About 4 more miles up I see the Christmas trees flashing behind me, so I slowed to 65 mph and he stayed behind me. Looking for a good place to pull over I did so in a businesses parking lot right off the highway. I parked and the cop in the same Granite Crystal Metallic unmarked Charger, except for hidden Christmas lights in it, stopped about 40 feet from me. Same color car as mine. He got out of his car and stood behind his door, I rolled my window down and looked back at him and he waved at me to get out and come over to his car. I got out and walked over to see what he says. He said, do you have a gun on you? I said no, Now, I'm expecting a ticket for something, but I never sped I just went fast getting to the speed limit.
He said do you know what the speed limit was back there? I said yes sir, 60 mph then turns to 70. He asked, do you know how fast you were going? I said yes sir,.
He said I'm headed home also, do you have you drivers license? Yes sir, hang on. I'll get my billfold. I walked back over to him and gave him my license. He said do you still live at so and so address? I said yes sir. He gave me back my license and said I'm not giving you a ticket because I'm headed home. I'm thinking good deal and said thank you Mr. Williams- that was the name on his shirt tag.
He drove off and I went on my way to take my wife to eat. I don't knew what kind of ticket he could give me that I wouldn't have gotten out of since I wasn't speeding. Maybe exhibition of the power of a Challenger to get into traffic and around them in short order? LOL He was a real nice guy and think he was just surprised to see a car rock to 60 mph in a little old po-dunk town of mine.
